Interesting Historical film..
A very interesting historical artifact, perhaps made to be shown in Negro movie houses during the time, which is a variation of what seemed to be the war film's favorite subject, eg, productivity and industry. Farmer Browne is like any typical farmer, 2 kids, a large farm, chickens, except he is black. What is great about this film that nowhere in the film this is mentioned (which probably hammered down where this film was distributed to), Of course Farmer brown is producing for 2 reasons, for his family and for the soldiers in the air. Hardly propagandistic, this film breezes along.
